Bills released WR Rod Streater with an injury settlement.

The ex-Raider and 49er injured his leg in the second preseason game. Now 29, Streater caught 18 passes for the 49ers last season.

When asked if Rod Streater (leg) will require surgery, Bills coach Sean McDermott said "we're weighing our options."

The Bills have been mum on Streater's status since he went down with a leg/foot injury in Thursday's preseason loss to Philadelphia. Buffalo did waive WR/TE Jason Croom over the weekend, which could be a sign that Streater's injury won't be a long-term issue. Streater had been showing well at Bills camp before his injury, but is probably no better than fourth on the team's wide receiver depth chart.

Bills WR Rod Streater was carted off with a left leg injury in Buffalo's second preseason game.

While catching a pass in the fourth quarter Streater twisted his leg and was unable to make it off the field under his own power. He had two catches for 40 yards until that point. Streater was drawing rave reviews early in camp.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said WR Rod Streater has been "one of the highlights of training camp."

This falls in line with reports from Bills camp. Streater has emerged as the top option behind Sammy Watkins and Zay Jones on a weak depth chart. With Anquan Boldin talks at a stall, Streater is the in-house favorite for the No. 3 job.

Bills signed WR Rod Streater.

Streater has been close to a non-factor since his 60-catch 2013 season with the Raiders, bouncing between the Chiefs and 49ers last year. The Bills desperately need depth at receiver with both Sammy Watkins (foot) and Zay Jones (knee) injured. Streater will compete for a spot at the bottom of the roster.

Free agent WR Rod Streater is visiting the Bills on Tuesday.

It is his first reported interest since the Vikings took a look in March. Streater has done little since his 60-catch 2013, but the Bills have essentially nothing behind Sammy Watkins (foot) and Zay Jones (knee), who are both hurt.

The Vikings have interest in free agent Rod Streater.

The Vikings haven't visited with Streater but are in the market for a speed receiver to replace Cordarrelle Patterson. The Colts, Seattle, Cleveland and the 49ers are also in the mix.

Rod Streater pulled in six catches for 63 yards and a touchdown on seven targets Saturday in the 49ers' Week 16 win over the Rams.

Five of his six grabs came in the second half. Streater trimmed the Rams’ lead to one with 31 seconds remaining. San Francisco later took the lead back on a two-point conversion by Colin Kaepernick. Streater has drawn 10 targets with Torrey Smith (concussion) sidelined the last two weeks and has scored in both contests. Streater and the Niners will close out the season next week at home against Seattle.

Rod Streater believes he's a good fit for the 49ers' offense.

"It’s a little more up-tempo," said Streater. "It's all really good offense. I feel like I fit here." Streater arrived in a trade from Kansas City last weekend. Injuries have limited Streater to just four games over his last two seasons. Game flow could force the Niners to pass late in games, though it's unlikely Streater will be much of a fantasy factor.

49ers acquired WR Rod Streater and a conditional 2019 seventh-round pick from the Chiefs in exchange for a conditional 2019 seventh-round pick.

The draft picks being exchanged are certainly late-rounders. Streater got injured in Oakland and disappeared during the 2015 season, losing his No. 3 job to Seth Roberts. He wasn't making much noise in Kansas City, either, but the talentless 49ers are taking a shot after losing slot man Bruce Ellington to I.R. Streater is a candidate to take over the inside job in San Francisco.

Rod Streater has "looked great" filling in for Albert Wilson.

Streater has been getting first-team reps with Wilson sidelined. He’s in the driver seat for Kansas City’s No. 4 receiver job. Streater could overtake Wilson with a strong preseason.

Chiefs signed WR Rod Streater, formerly of the Raiders, to a one-year deal "worth up to" $4.8 million.

Streater took visits with the Patriots and Jets, but his best shot at a roster spot was with the Chiefs. A seemingly ascending receiver before spending all of 2015 as a healthy scratch, Streater has a good shot to crack Kansas City's thin receiver corps.

Free agent WR Rod Streater is visiting the Chiefs Saturday.

He was linked with the Kansas City earlier this week. The Chiefs need depth at receiver, and Streater looked like a promising possession guy before spending most of 2015 as a healthy scratch. He has also visited the Patriots and Jets.

Free agent WR Rod Streater is visiting the Patriots on Thursday.

Streater is also expected to visit the Jets, but that won't happen if the Patriots make him an offer first. Streater played 10 snaps in Week 1 last season but didn't play a single down thereafter as he tumbled down to the bottom of the depth chart. He's still just 28 and is a technician in the short area.
